- Do I need Wi-Fi at my venue to use Square?
No, you can rent iPads with 4G LTE data or process payments in Offline Mode.*
*Offline payments are processed automatically when your device regains connectivity, and will expire if not processed within 72 hours. By enabling Offline Mode, you’re responsible for any expired, declined, or disputed payments accepted while offline. Before swiping a card offline, we recommend you verify the name of the cardholder as well as the expiration date to ensure it’s a valid card. If a payment card is declined, Square is unable to provide buyer contact information. You’re unable to cancel or refund pending offline payments. To issue a refund, first complete your pending payments. To do so, reconnect your mobile device to the internet to automatically upload your payments. Once complete, you can issue a refund.
